Possibility of a 2-stage assessments: a few questions during signup, and then an emailed questionnaire later? Make all questions optional, form doesn't require you to mark answers Privacy and reidentifiability versus making the data open Intersectionality sometimes gets lost in aggregate data; how can we make the intersectionality in the data usable in reports and applications? ## What could we possibly do with this data Evaluate how SIPS is doing in relation to its organizational goals around diversity If we can track the same people year-to-year in the dataset, can track dropout and pipeline leaks Linkage to full SIPS member dataset so we can connect to other information about members Ability to analyze conference presenters, award recipients Outreach – soliciting for awards
